In this workshop, teachers learn how the English language is acquired and constructed. Language acquisition theory, basic syntax, semantics, morphology, and additional linguistic topics are discussed. Participants leave with an understanding of how students learn English, the linguistic needs of learning English, and how teachers can promote the language development of their English language learners (ELLs).
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Define linguistic terms such as syntax.
• Summarize how the English language is acquired and constructed.
• Implement strategies that support English language development for ELLs.
